PREFACE. 

REGARD for ancestors, with a strong desire to aid in 
preserving many of their records from oblivion, is one of 
the motives which prompted the compilation of this work. 

Genealogy occupies a unique department in literature, in that it 
requires unmeasured patience and perseverance and a devoted love 
for the work on the part of one who assumes the burden, coupled 
with the fact that very inadequate pecuniary reward will be realized 
in return for the time expended in producing desired results, so that 
the task must be considered purely as a woik of love. 

The compiler began his work about twenty years ago by personal 
search of records in the early homes of the Cadys in Massachusetts 
and Eastern Connecticut. Since then the work has been continued, 
as time permitted, by research in many other localities, in private 
and public records, and by extensive correspondence with members 
of the family in most of the states of the Union. Hundreds of 
letters have been sent requesting records, but it is to be regretted 
that some of them have received no response, thus allowing a 
partial lack of data which a little attention might have supplied. 
But the sincere thanks of the compiler are due the majority who 
have kindly responded. 

The compiler thankfully acknowledges the aid rendered him by 
the late Prof. Daniel Cady Eaton of New Haven, who contributed 
his researches to be used in the work. By Frederick Waterman 
Cady of East Providence, R. I., who turned over his valuable 
material which he began collecting many years ago, concerning his 
own and some other branches of the family. By the late Dwight 
Holmes Cady of Springfield, Mass., for the records and well-drawn 
portraiture and environments of his immediate ancestors. By Miss 
Flora May King of Somersville, Conn., who, using for a basis the 
data left by her cousin, D. H. Cady, has, during the past ten years, 
admirably succeeded, with great care and patience, in completing 



PREFACE. 5 

quite fully the records of the descendants of Daniel Cady of 
Stafford, Conn. By Judge William Gere Cady of Syracuse, N. Y., 
for the loan of his carefully collected records of the many families 
connected with his branch of the Cadys. By Monroe Marsh Cady, 
lawyer, of Dubuque, Iowa, for his many contributions and aid in 
other ways. And last, but not least, by Curtis Converse Cady 
Bradley of Manchester, Iowa, who has furnished many records, and 
by untiring effort has identified William 4 Cady of Plainfield, Conn., 
as the father of Dea. Eleazer Cady of Hinsdale, Mass., about whom 
much uncertainty had long existed. These sources of aid, combined 
with the long list of those who have so generously responded to the 
call for records, have been important factors in contributing to the 
successful outcome of this genealogy. Although lack of space forbids 
further mention here of individual cases, yet the simplest record 
received has been appreciated, and will be by all concerned. 

Attention is called to the leading characteristics of a majority of 
the descendants of Nicholas Cady, which have been push, progress 
and patriotism. They figured largely and honorably in the wars of 
the Revolution, of 1812, and in the late Civil strife. They have 
always been among the pioneers who have settled the newer portions 
of our country, east and west, where also they have been men of 
affairs. They have furnished members for Congress and state 
legislatures ; large numbers for all the leading professions, for 
successful merchants and hosts of private citizens, respected for 
their moral worth. 

Much material came late to hand which had to be used without 
the usual extension. The same cause accounts for most of the 
fractional numbers. While the compiler has taken great pains to 
insure correctness of statement, he is aware that errors will occur 
with the most rigid proof reading and the most kindly intending 
copyst. So the compiler would be thankful for the correction of 
any errors found in the book. The self-imposed task has been 
accomplished and the result is sent forth with the hope that it will 
serve as a new bond of family union and that the deeds of honor- 
able progenitors may ever be an inspiration for progressive endeavor 
on the part of all present and future desecendants of Nicholas Cady, 
our worthy ancestor.

EXPLANATIONS. 

/" l "V HIS genealogy is arranged according to the plan adopted 
by the New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register, which has come into general use. Thus on 
page 20, the figures on the extreme left of the page denote the 
successive numbers of the heads of the families which will be taken 
up again ; when a number is omitted before a name it indicates that 
such a name will not be mentioned again. Thus on page 20, 
number 10-i. James, etc., we find on page 28, where James is 
brought up with full particulars and his full family record is given. 
The small exponents figures on page 28 which follow, thus: 
12 James3 Cady, (James 2 , Nicholas 1 )* show the number of 
generations from the common ancestor, Nicholas Cady. 

Abbreviations. — Abt. for about ; b. for born ; bapt. for baptized ; 
ch. for children ; d. for died ; dau. for daughter ; m. for married ; 
unm. for unmarried. 

Old and New Style. — All dates prior to 1742 are supposed to 
conform to the old style then used. 



INTRODUCTION. 



Origin of the Name of Cady. 

ARTHUR, in his Etymological Dictionary of Family Names, 
says that Cady is derived from Ca-dia, a Gaelic word 
signifying the House of God. He also says that Cadie in 
Scottish is an errand boy, a messenger. From the foregoing it 
would seem that the name had its origin among the Gael of the 
north and was nourished there later by the Scotch, from whom it 
found its way over the border into England, where it has long 
flourished ; thence it came early to America, where it has taken 
deep root and furnished a host of worthy representatives, from the 
hardy yeoman to men in business centers and honored names in all 
the nobler professions of our land. 

This patronymic, like many other names, has undergone many 
changes in spelling. In the ancient Hundred Rolls it is Cade, then 
Caddie, Caddy, Cadye, Kadye, Cadey, and last, Cady, which form 
now holds in this country. 

Cady Coats of Arms. 

Quite a number of Cadys in several of the English counties have 
been honored with coats of arms, viz. : Caddy, i ; Cade in Derby- 
shire, 2 ; Cade in Rumford, County Essex, i ; Cade in Greenwich, 
County Kent, i ; Cade in County Suffolk, i ; Cadye and Kadye in 
County Gloucestershire, 2 ; the latter is described as follows : " On 
a mount, vert, a cocatrice, or ; combed and wattled, ducally gorged 
and chained, or." * 



*Vide BookJofJFamily Crests, vol. 2. 



IO DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

Cadys in England. 

Stephen's National Biography says : "The name of Cade was not 
uncommon in Sussex, in the neighborhood of Heathfield, in 1450." 

We find the name of Walto Cade and Margery Cade in the ancient 
document called the Hundred Rolls. In 1450 we find Jack Cade the 
leader of a formidable rebellion in Kent. " Over-taxation, the bad 
management of the Council, the extortion of the subordinate officers, 
the injustice of the king's bench, the abuse of the right of 
purveyance, the "enquestes" and amercements, and the illegitimate 
control of elections were the chief causes of the rising of 1450." 
The rising was political and not religious. It was not a disorderly 
mob, but was a well organized rising of the people at large. " The 
Commons in 1450 arose against Lancaster and in favor of York. 
Their rising was the first great struggle in the Wars of the Roses." * 

Cade and his rebels defeated the royal forces at Seven Oaks June 
27, and took possession of London July 2, 1450, but soon after they 
were beaten in a battle and forced to quit the city. Cade, the 
leader, was killed near Heathfield, Sussex, July 12, 1450."! 

The Cadys of Devonshire. 

In 1892 Prof. Daniel Cady Eaton of Yale University and the 
compiler of this work engaged Mr. J. J. Howard, Maltravers' Herald, 
an English expert, to search the Registers of Northam, Abbotsham 
and Bedford on the western side of Devonshire County, Eng., for 
evidence of Cades or Cadys in that locality. The result was that he 
copied from the various registers about 900 names of Cadys and the 
allied families of Rowe, Hooper, Strange, Lawrence and others, with 
whom they had closely intermarried since 1540. 

The earliest name in the list is that of William Cade, bapt. in 
Northam, Devon County, Nov. 10, 1540, but his parents are not given. 
A list of his children followed in due time. As our search failed to 
find any trace of Nicholas Cade, a detailed report of the investiga- 
tion is not deemed necessary, although there is some probability that 
he migrated from this locality. 

In a list of Pedigrees in Visitation of the County of Hertford, 
1592-1634, there is given the name of Cade of Kings' Langley.

Godfrey Cade was witness to will of Mary Street of Bridgewater, 
England, July 16, 1625.* 

John Park of London, Eng., merchant tailor, in will dated July 
3, 1620, mentions brothers of his wife, Andrew Cade, Symond Cade, 
and the nephew, Walter Cade. Will proved Apr. 5, 1 627.1 

Salisbury Cade, b. Kent, Eng., 1660; graduated from Trunly 
College, Oxford, Eng., 1691, with title of M. D; d. 1720. 

Cades of Derbyshire. 

Cade is the name of a very old Derbyshire family, and is to be 
found in the early Parish Registers of Chesterfield, Eckington, 
Barlborough, Staveley, etc. The Pedigree Register of June, 1909, 
just received from London, gives an extended and interesting list of 
descendants of John Cade, who in 1327 was one of the six inhabi- 
tants of Eckington assessed at 60s for goods. The record extends 
from 1327 to about 1800. 

The above citations are given to show that the Cadys were not 
limited to a single locality but were dispersed from an early date in 
many of the English counties, of whom a goodly number were 
honored by the bestowment of coats of arms for valor or other 
deeds deemed worthy of royal favor. 

Migrations of Cadys to America. 

James Cade, who settled in Hingham, Mass., 1635, was bapt. May 
16, 1611, the son of Christopher Cade, bapt. Apr. 10, 1583, son of 
James Cade, bapt. June 29, 1552, all natives of Northam, County 
Devon, Eng. The younger, James Cade, married Aug. 21, 1633, 
Margaret Browne of Bidford, near Northam. Their first child was 
Philip, born in Northam Mar. 20, 1635. Some time in 1635 James 
Cade migrated to New England, for we found he "was the first one 
to draw his house lot in Hingham, Mass., Sept. 18, 1635 ; his lot 
was next to the sea, what is now Ship St., in Hingham." He was 
one of the 29 first settlers. J

We next hear of him in Boston, Dec. 4, 1638, when he and his 
wife Margaret mortgaged their property in Northam, lately belonging 
to his father, Christopher Cade, and his mother, May Hopper. In 
this mortgage he styles himself as a shipwright.* His wife Margaret 
was admitted to the church in Boston 19 (1) 1643. Their child 
Margaret was born 4 (8) 1640. The last we hear of him is that he 
removed to Yarmouth (probably Nova Scotia). 

In a list of persons licensed to go beyond the seas is given the 
name of William Caddy, Jan. 2, 1634, to be transported to Virginia 
in barque Bonaventure. Also ticket granted to Hubert Henry on 
ship John and Henry for Bristol, Thomas Cades, commander. 
Benjamin Cady of Andover, Mass., m. Feb. 16, 1664, Mary, dau. of 
Keyes of Newbury. Jonathan Cady of Rowley m. Nov. 12, 1667, 
Esther Chandler of Andover. We hear no more of either of these 
last two Cadys. 

A Peter Cade was of Boston and on March 12, 1738, was chosen 
constable and excused.f He was keeping tavern in Cambridge in 
1748, and died in 1752, leaving a son Peter, aged 14. | Josiah Cady 
came from England and made a permanent settlement in Canaan, 
Conn., date not given, but his oldest son, Josiah, born in England, 
died 1800 in Falls Village, Conn. From the fact that William, the 
oldest child of Josiah 2 , was born in 1785, it would appear that the 
elder Josiah did not come to this country till about 1760. Descend- 
ants still remain in Litchfield Co., Conn., and elsewhere. 

"Thomas Cade of Sturgis, St. Joseph Co., Mich., was born in 
Yorkshire, Eng., Jan. 7, 1786; died at Sturgis, March 9, 1879, in 
94th year. He emigrated in July, 1830, going directly to Sturgis, 
where he purchased 320 acres of prairie land. He was always 
engaged in agriculture, was successful and was of most honorable 
and honest character. He left three sons, Stephen W., well known 
for his generosity, served as supervisor for many years with credit ; 
another son Joseph has a handsome farm and buildings." §

DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY 

Of Watertown and Groton, Mass., 1645 — 1909. 



WHILE we have no certain knowledge of the locality in 
England whence Nicholas Cady came to this country, 
or the exact date of his advent here, yet one or two 
suggestions are offered, either of which may possibly be a solution 
of the matter. 

For a time it was throught that he was a son or brother of James 
Cade of Hingham, both of which assumptions have been disproved, 
for James Cade was not married till 1633, a date too late for 
Nicholas to have been his son, and the will of Christopher Cade 
proved that he had no son Nicholas. The search in Devon County, 
Eng., failed to find a Nicholas Cady, yet he may have been born 
there, for the Registers give evidence that during several years no 
entries were made, and in a number of cases the entries were not 
legible, which fact leaves one with a feeling of doubt. 

Another suggestion is that he came over a minor in 1630 with 
William Knapp, as a carpenter's apprentice, for we know that 
Nicholas Cady was a carpenter, as was William Knapp, who came 
from near Bury St. Mary, County Suffolk, Eng., where he left his 
daughter, Elizabeth, who had married ; and as there were Cades at 
Stoken Stein in the same county at that time, it is quite reasonable 
to suppose that Nicholas Cady, a younger son, might have been 
bound out as an apprentice to Knapp, as was the custom of the 
time, and that he might have been allowed to migrate with his 
master to America, as many another scion had done. We know 
that Nicholas was very intimately connected with the Knapp family 
for some years before his marriage with Judith, the daughter of 
William Knapp ; which fact adds force to the supposition that he 



14 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

might have been a member of the family as an apprentice. The 
very first undoubted record we have of him is a partnership with 
John, the son of William Knapp, as follows, from Suffolk Deeds, 
book i, p. 66-67, dated 8 (10) 1645 : 

"Wm Potter of Watertown granted unto Nicholas Cadey and 
John Knapp his house in Watertown, house lott of Eight Acres 
adjoining unto John Bassetts lott and three Acres meadow in the 
remote meadow bounded with Isaac Mixters, East & John Water- 
bury west and south & dividends on the north. Also six Acres 
upland in the Liev of the township & a certaine ffarme be layed out 
according to his pportion & this was by an absolute dead of sale 
8 (10) 1645 

Witness That Purchas, Wm Aspenwall, Acknowleged before the 
D: Gov:" 

The record of the sale of the above-mentioned interest to John 
Knapp is as follows : 

"Suffolk Deeds, book 1, p. 134. Nicholas Cadye for valuable 
consideration did grant assigne & make over unto John Knap of 
Watertown all his right & title in & unto a certain house & houses 
granted jointed to them both by a deed dated 8 (10) 1645 an d this 
was by assignment dated 6 ( ) 1650 signed and marked & dd in 
presence of Wm Aspenwall & Theopilus Manning." 

Nicholas Cady married Judith Knapp, dau. of William of Water- 
town. No date has been found, but presumably about 1648. 

The following is taken from Bond's Watertown : 

Wm. Knapp, a carpenter, proprietor, 1636-7, probably came in 
1630 with Nicholas Knapp. William died Aug. 30, 1658, aged 
about 80. Will dated 1655 shows his heirs to have been : 

William, who d. Sept. 25, 1676; m. (1) Mary; m. (2) Margaret. 

John, b. 1624; m. May 25, 1660, Sarah Young. 

James, b. 1627 ; m. 1654, Elizabeth Warren. 

Mary ; m. Thomas Smith of Watertown. 

Judith ; m. Nicholas Cady of Watertown. 

Anne ; m. Thomas Philbrick ; was dead and her children took her 
share. 

Elizabeth Buttery, widow, of Bury St. Mary, Suffolk, Eng. ; her 
share ^ was sold by Attorney T. Danforth to Nathaniel Coolidge. 

William Knapp mentions no wife in his will, but in the settlement 
of his estate his widow, Priscilla, received one-third of it, besides a 



DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 1 5 

debt due to her for a sum loaned before marriage by Widow Priscilla 
Akers. He married (probably between the writing of his will and 
his death) Priscilla, widow of Thomas Akers; most of his estate 
passed from the possession of his heirs to that of Nathaniel 
Coolidge. In 1652 Nicholas Cady, with others, took the oath of 
fidelity.* On 5 (2) 1653, Nicholas Cady was of the Train Band of 
Watertown, under Capt. Mason.f December 24, 1667, Nicholas 
Cady, carpenter, of Watertown, exchanges house and land at 
Watertown, Mass., with John Clary, carpenter, as follows : 

"This indenture made the 24 day of December Anne Domina 
1667 between John Clary, senr of the town of Watertown in the 
County of Middlesex, carpenter on ye one part and Nicholas Cady, 
carpenter of the same Town and County on the other part, Witnesseth 
That the said John Clary in consideration of an exchange of a 
certain house and land lying and being in the Township of Water- 
town to him in hand paid by ye sd Nicholas Cady at the sealing and 
delivery of this whereof ye said John Clary doth acknowledge the 
receipt & himself therewith fully satisfied & paid thereof Doth fully 
& absolutely acquit & discharge the said Nicholas Cady his heirs 
executors & administrators by these hath with ye consent of Sarah 
Clary his now wife in so forever surrendering up her thirds according 
to law in the several Lands promising expense in this writing with 
all and every of their appertannance given, granted, barganed, said 
and do by these, give, grant, Bargain sell Confirm & Deliver 
unto said Nicholas Cadey his heirs, assigns forever, his whole 
accommodations lying & being in the Township of Groton aforesaid, 
Viz : — One house & house lott with the addition fifty one acres, 
more or less lying on both sides of ye County highway." 

The above was not placed on record for many years, as shown by 
the following : 

"John Clary of Watertown appeared before me the thirty one 
day of July & freely acknowledged the writing to be his act & Deed 
Received and accordingly entered July 31, 1707

probably sister of Nicholas.* She d. Dec. 23, 1681, leaving no 
children.f 

He must have removed to Groton in the early part of 1668, for 
we find that on Sept. 10, 1668, Nicholas Cady of Groton, planter, 
and wife Judith, sold to G. Lawrence six acres of land in Water- 
town and five acres of meadow in Cambridge. 

On the 3d of the nth month, 1669, a description of his land in 
Groton, Mass., was recorded. 

Dec. 10, 1671, Nicholas Cady was surveyor at Groton. His name 
appears among others on the Indian rolls of land grants that were 
made before the town of Groton was burned by the Indians in 1676. 

The Indian war commenced Mar. 13, 1676, and Groton was 
assaulted and burned by them, and the inhabitants who had taken 
refuge in the garrison house were rescued by Capt. Sills Lee with 
fifty dragoons and 60 carts, who had been sent to rescue them. 
Many of the inhabitants sought shelter at Concord, where a meeting 
of the former residents of Groton was held Dec. 12, 1677, to 
consider the rebuilding of the town. Nicholas Cady's name 
not appearing in the list of those who desired to do so, and from 
the fact that on May 14, 1678, Nicholas Cady of Cambridge bought 
of John Wincoll 60 acres of land in Cambridge for ^17-ios, 
inclines one to believe that he did not return to Groton for some 
time. He was probably in Mr. Williams' garrison, for in a paper to 
the General Court, dated at Groton March 14, 1676, it states that 
"Daniel Adams did kill one Indian at Mr. Williams' garrison. 
Witness John Cady & Samuel Wood. We saw him fall to the 
ground and not raise up again, Nicholas Cady." 

Jan. 9, 1679, Nicholas Cady conveys to his daughter Judith, now 
the wife of Alexander Rouse, for and in consideration of the natural 
affection and parental love for her, eleven acres of land in Groton, 
Mass. 

June 8, 1680, he was chosen surveyor. 

December, 1680, he is mentioned among lists of heads of families. 

In t68i he paid a tax of 18s 2d (only one person in Groton was 
taxed more^T"'

On 25 d, 10 m, 1683, chosen surveyor at town meeting. 

On 29 d, 11 m, 1683, purchased of the town for 5s fifteen acres 
of land. 

On 18 d, 1 m, 1683/4, is recorded a sale of 6 acres of land in 
Cambridge for ^15 by Nicholas Cady of Groton, planter, to J. 
Winter. Also on same date, for valuable consideration of money, 
sold to Simon Cooledge, two pieces of land in Watertown, one a 
dividend of 25 acres, the other 6 acres ; guaranteed by him and his 
beloved wife Judith. 

On Dec. 10, 1685, Nicholas Cady was chosen constable. 

On 10 d, 10 m, 1685/6, was chosen surveyor. 

On 9 d, 9 m, 1685, "it was granted to Nicholas Cady a small pes 
of land at the South Sid of ingin hill at the Sid of his own lot Soo 
he Dooe in no way in trench upon the hye way." 

In 1673 and 1675 Corporal Cady was appointed one of the fence 
viewers, who no doubt was Nicholas Cady, who had received military 
instruction under Capt. Mason in the Train Band at Watertown. 

On May 12, 1712, John Cady of Groton sells to Capt. Jonas 
Prescott of G., "Several parcels of land with half the later Rights 
belonging to Old Nicholas Cady, that doth now appear to be 
disposed of."* On May 16, 17 12, John Cady, husbandman, of 
Groton, sells several parcels of land, describing them "with one- 
half ye town rights formerly Nicholas Cadys, deceased, or now 
mine the Sd John Cady's."t 

We have no record of the date of the death of Nicholas Cady, 
or that of his wife Judith, or the place of their demise ; but doubt- 
less their last days were spent in Groton, and from the last two items 
above we infer that Nicholas Cady lived with his oldest son, John, 
to whom fell a goodly portion of his father's limited estate. We 
also learn that he had deceased prior to 17 12. Nicholas Cady 
resided near Cady's Pond, named for him, located about a mile 
southeasterly from the village of Groton, on the Boston road. 

The foregoing account, simple and unpretentious, is all that the 
records of the past vouchsafe to us of the life our ancestor,

Nicholas Cady, and his wife Judith. We would gladly draw aside 
the veil that enshrouds so much of their lives in mystery, but as that 
is impossible we are left to read between the lines of some of the 
probabilities connected with them. 

If our surmise is correct, that Nicholas Cady was a native of 
Suffolk County, Eng., and came over with William Knapp in 1630; 
he may have been a connection, near or remote, of that Cade of 
Suffolk who bore a Coat of Arms, or of that Edward Cade of Stoken 
Steen, a contemporary in 1634. After the completion of his 
apprenticeship to William Knapp (providing he was an apprentice) 
he marries the daughter of his master, and in Watertown, where he 
first settles, all his children are born ; then he goes to Groton, where 
a strenuous life begins in a new settlement with all the incidents 
which that statement brings to mind, to which was added later a life 
in garrison with a constant fear of savage assault, so imminent that 
all sought safety in retreat, leaving their homes to be burned by the 
Indian enemy. Several years later he returned to spend his days in 
Groton, where peace and prosperty is enjoyed, surrounded by his 
children, and honored by his fellow-citizens, who appreciate his 
worth. 

No lettered tablets mark the last resting place of Nicholas Cady 
and his wife Judith ; their only monuments were their children, 
whose successful and honored careers testified to the wealth of 
mental endowment inherited from their parents.

1699 to 1712. We find him in Canterbury, Conn., May 28, 1716, 

where he bought real estate and transferred it the same day to his 

son Jonathan, with whom he doubtless arranged to live. As yet no 

date has been found of the marriage of John Cady and Joanna 

, but it is reasonable to suppose that it was about 1676, when 

he would have been twenty-five years of age. The birth dates of 

his older children are not recorded, and it is evident that four other 

children ought to be added to his family, not on the records, for 

there seems to be no other legitimate place for them among the 

Cady families of Groton, where the records are sadly lacking in full 

dates. For reasons jj.ven in the proper place, we feel justified in 

adding the names of 1 'annah, Esther, Mary and John to the fully 

accredited list of John and Joanna Cady's children, with the 

approximate dates of their birth.

Hannah Cady, made his will Dec. 31, 1711, which was probated 8, 
7 mo., 1 71 2, in which a certain sum was devised to Hannah Cady or 
her heirs. The inventory of James Cady's estate was ^69 9s.* 
Administration was granted to John and Joseph Cady on estate of 
their brother, James Cady of Groton, deceased, June 16, 1691. 
This is the language of the original court record ; in the copy as 
often quoted it is James instead of Joseph. It would seem that 
James Cady was of Watertown, where his first child, James, was 
born, and that a little later he also removed to Groton, where he 
was living at the time of his death. The date of death of his 
widow, Hannah, is not known. Of James Cady's children James, 
Elizabeth and Aaron are known to be such, and the others in the 
following list are such with great probability, for there seems 
nowhere else to place them.

settled on this farm with his large family, and there he spent his 
days in peace and prosperity. He represented the town of Canter- 
bury in the Connecticut General Assembly in 17 17. In 1724 he 
gave land for a burying place, which now forms the original part of

and sold to other settlers. He removed from Old Killingly prior to 
1720 and located in Preston, Conn., where he purchased a mill 
property and conducted it till his death. Patience, his widow, was

Davis, b. Groton, Mass., Aug. 12, 1667. Capt. Joseph Cady d. 
Killingly, Conn., Dec. 29, 1742. Date of his wife's death has not 
been ascertained. Dr. Samuel Green, the Groton historian, is the 
authority for stating that Davis was the surname of Joseph Cady's 
wife, as noted in the following extract, written by him in July, 1907, 
to Judge F. A. Henry of Cleveland, O. : 

"In my copy of Butler's History of Groton, p. 391, I have written 
Davis after the name of Sarah, wife of Joseph Cady. I probably 
got it from the Middlesex Probate record office at Cambridge. In 
connection with this matter I would refer you to the Groton 
Historical Series 3, p. 365, where you will find some facts about the 
Davis family." 

Referring to the above book as directed, we find the name Sarah 
Davis, she being one of a family of eight children of Samuel and 
Mary Davis of Groton, Mass. 

Joseph Cady removed to Groton with his parents when he was an 
infant, and in that town he spent his youth and young manhood ; 
then, at the age of ten, he began to experience the strenuous life of 
the early settlers of Massachusetts, in the three assaults of the 
Indians in the month of March, 1676, when the inhabitants sought 
protection in their garrisoned houses, which were bravely defended 
till relieved by Capt. Lee of Cambridge, who escorted them and their 
effects to Concord ; there also he had service with his brothers, 
John, Daniel and Nicholas, in the garrison defense of the town 
during the Indian disturbances of 1691-2. After immediate danger 
from the Indians was past, he returned with the other people who 
had left Groton, who sought to repair the damage they had 
sustained. In 1695 he was chosen Constable of Groton, and was 
granted permission by the General Court to keep an inn from 1699 
to 1 701. He disposed of his real estate in Groton Feb. 22, 1702/3, 
and on Jan. 20, 1703, he bought 150 acres of land for ,£20 of John 
Chandler of Woodstock, located in Aspinock,* later called Killingly, 
now Putnam, Conn., where he removed his family and where he 
spent the remainder of his life. This farm was located north of the 
old Providence road, about one mile easterly from the present city 
of Putnam. The site of his first abode, a log house, can still be 
identified on the south side of the farm. As an evidence of his

prosperity, he built a pretentious house in 17 14, which was occupied 
by himself and descendants for many years. The general appear- 
ance of the house may be judged from the photograph herewith 
given. The writer visited the old house in 1895 and found it 
deserted by tenants and fast going to ruin. It had a frontage of 
two stories ; in the center was the conventional stone chimney of 
the olden days, with a huge oven and fireplace in the kitchen, and 
fireplaces for the reception and family rooms. There were six 
rooms of varying size on each floor, of ample proportion and 
convenience. 

A short time before his death Joseph Cady Jun. sold this home- 
stead to Darius Session, Deputy Governor of Rhode Island, who 
made it his summer residence ; a few years later, during the dark 
days of the Revolution, this house became a familiar resort for noted 
men, including Washington, who is said to have been entertained 
there during one of his trips across the country. It next came into 
the possession of Solomon Cleveland, whose brilliant family became 
the center of attraction in the old township.* 

In the course of time this property changed from hand to hand, 
and finally became the home for changing tenants till it was deserted 
in 1893, when it was said to have been the oldest standing house in 
N. E. Connecticut. 

The ability of Joseph Cady found early recognition in his newly- 
adopted home, for in 1708 he was chosen Lieutenant of the soldiers 
or Train Band of Aspinock, and confirmed as such by act of the 
Colonial Assembly in same year.| In 172 1 the Train Band was 
reorganized and Joseph Cady was chosen Captain, Ephraim Warren, 
Lieutenant, and Thomas Gould, Ensign. J During his captaincy 
Luther Rasle's war resulted in Lovewell's expedition and the New 
England colonies were in a ferment, and Capt. Joseph Cady was one 
of the "three military officers" from Killingly who were engaged, as 
stated by Miss Larned. On returning from one of these perilous 
expeditions he was thus greeted by an old squaw whose family he 
had befriended : " Oh, Massa Cady, I glad to see you ; I so glad I 
could drink a whole quart of rum."§ Capt. Cady was noted for his

giant frame and physical prowess, and he gained notable influence 
over the Indians, with whom he had much intercourse, from the fact 
that his farm produced quantities of their sacred medicinal herbs, for 
which they came in often quest, and as this was considered neutral 
ground they left their animosities behind. 

However, the following tale relates an unfortunate result of a 
friendly meeting with an Indian : 

"As Joseph Cady was one day cutting brush alone, an Indian 
approached him from the neighboring forest and expressed a strong 
desire to try the skill of a white man in wrestling. Cady thought to 
himself that if he could throw the fellow it might operate to deter 
the Indians from hostilities against the settlements, and accordingly 
accepted the challenge. Both men struggled long and desperately ; 
but Cady at last prevailed and the Indian was prostrated. Unfor- 
tunately he fell among the brush which his antagonist had been 
cutting, and one of the sharp stumps perforating his skull, he died 
on the spot."* 

Capt. Joseph Cady had charge of the public lands of Killingly for 
many years, and was a useful man of general public affairs, as the 
many town records of him testify. On March 25, 1728, he was 
chosen townsman. He was Deputy, or Representative, from 
Killingly in 1 731-1734.

and Sarah Warner. The following is the record at Concord, Mass. : 
" Samuel Warner and Hannah Cady, both of Groton, were married 
at Concord Oct. 15, 1706." The inscription on the gravestone of 
Hannah, wife of Samuel Warner, is that she died April 22, 1775, in 
her 98th year, making her born 1677/8. This proves the statement 
impossible that Hannah, the widow of James Cady, married Samuel 
Warner. It also proves that Hannah was not a daughter of James 
and Hannah Cady, who were married June 14, 1678, and whose first 
child, James, was born nine months later, viz.: April 1, 1679. 
Granted that Hannah was a daughter of John and Joanna Cady, we 
have a good reason for her being called Hannah, as a compliment to 
the wife, Hannah Barron, who had that same year married James, 
the brother of John Cady.

11. Sergt. John3 Cady, (James 2 , Nicholas 1 ), b. Watertown, 

Mass., abt. 1680; m. abt. 1698, Elizabeth ; m. (2) Elizabeth, 

probably dau. of John and Sarah (Fitch) Stoughton, b. Feb. 19, 
1692, and widow of Joseph Mather, who d. Nov. 7, 17 17. The date 
of neither marriage is known. Sergt. John Cady d. Sept. 6, 1751 ; 
his widow, Elizabeth Cady, d. Feb. 29, 1760; both buried in East 
Windsor, Conn. The first wife was probably the mother of the five 
oldest children. 

The following account of Sergt. John Cady is taken from the notes 
given the compiler of this work by Prof. Daniel Cady Eaton several 
years before his death : 

"John Cady, probably the son of James. The records of 
transfers of land show his residence in Groton, Mass., 1 699-1 701 ; 
Plainfield, Conn., 1704; Canterbury, 1704-1721; Tolland, 1721- 
1725; Willington, 1 725-1 727; Windsor, 17 28-1 739; Coventry, 
1740; Tolland, 1740. Probably he soon returned to Windsor, 
where he d. Sept. 6, 175 1. One of the Tolland deeds, Sept. 6, 
1721, conveys to his "brother Daniel Cady of Tolland 254 acres of 
land for ^65." Another deed, from Daniel Cady Jr. of Canterbury 
to "my brother John Cady of Willington," dated Aug. 3, 1725^ 
reconveys the same land for ^160. Investigations in Windham 
county show that this Daniel Cady Jr. was neither Daniel Cady of 
Tatnick Hill (Brooklyn) nor his son, but was the Daniel Cady who 
came from Groton to Aspinock on the Quinnebaug River in 1707, 
and lived most of his life in Killingly. In the History of Windham 
County, Daniel Cady of Aspinock is confused with Daniel Cady of 
Tatnick Hill, who was a son of Nicholas Cady of Watertown. 
Similarly, Sergt. John Cady is confused by Bond and Savage with 
his uncle John, son of Nicholas Cady, for Joanna, wife of John Sr., 
was living long after John Jr. had children born by his wife Elizabeth. 
That this John Cady was the son of James Cady of Groton is 
inferred from the following facts : He lived in Groton with the 
other Cadys, and with them came to Connecticut. Aaron, the proved 
son of James Cady, followed John to Canterbury and afterwards 
went likewise to Tolland and Canterbury. Cornelius, grandson of 
James and son of James Jr., also went to Coventry. Dr. Aaron 
Cady is asserted to have been either brother or cousin to Ebenezer, 
son of John Cady, by the descendants of both Dr. Aaron and 
Ebenezer, who settled together in Columbus Co., N. Y. John's age, 



30 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

as given on his tombstone, conflicts with this belief, but ages on 
tombstones are often wrong, as for instance : On the tombstone of 
Daniel Cady of Tatnick Hill and of Ebenezer, son of this very John. 
The families of the other sons of Nicholas are known, but in the 
family record of James there is a blank of seven years from the 
birth of James in 1679 t0 Elizabeth in 1688, which blank is the 
only place where the names of John, Daniel and Abigail can be 
inserted." 

The compiler of this work takes the same view as stated above 
by Prof. Eaton, with the exception that the William whom the 
Professor originally included in the list was doubtless a son of 
Joseph Cady, a brother of James. This opinion is shared by others 
who have given the subject careful thought. 

During this year (1909) a careful research under the charge of 
C. C. C. Bradley of Manchester, Iowa, has brought to light in the 
records of the Probate office at Hartford, Conn., the settlement of 
John Cady's estate. The estate was appraised Oct. 1, 1751, by 
Pelatiah Bliss, Thomas Drake and Aaron Bissell. Among things 
mentioned were silver buttons, ivory-headed staff, notes against a 
dozen parties, a Bible, but no land. Administration was granted to 
Elizabeth Cady and John Smith, Dec. 1, 1751 : 

" Distribution of the estate of Sergt. John Cady, deceased, made 
by us the subscribers under oath Jan. 9, 1753. The total amount 
allowed to each is given here, made up of cash, notes or goods. 

To the widow, Elizabeth Cady, £271-9-10; John Cady, 
.£90-9-1 1 ; William Cady, £90-9-5 ; Ebenezer Cady, .£90-9-11 ; 
Elizabeth Cady heirs, £90-9-11 ; Deliverance Cady, £90-9-11. 

Jan. 9, 1753, we tne subscribers do hereby acknowledge we have 
Reed of Mrs. Elizabeth Cady, administratrix to ye estate of Mr. 
John Cady, Deceased the parts set out to us In the foregoing

Kingsbury as alowed of Probate at Hartford May 2, 1753, tnen 
this Distribution accepted, ordered to be paid. Test. Jos. Talcott, 
clerk." 

In the distribution, Eleazer signed, but his share does not appear ; 
it is probable that he had been given his share before his father's 
death. Ephraim Grant Jr. signed for his mother's estate, she having

The estate of John Cady as returned by the administratrix 
amounted to ,£959-12-9, less debts and charges of ,£145-3-9, 
leaving a balance of ,£814-9-5. John, William and Eleazer, sons 
of Sergt. John Cady, are said to have been in the English army

1682; m. Abigail Philbrick, b. March 6, 1686/7, dau. of 

Ephraim and Elizabeth (Barron) Philbrick. He d. in 1744 in 
Killingly, Conn. The date of death of his wife Abigail has not 
been found. It has been claimed that Daniel Cady married his 
cousin, Abigail Cady, dau. of John, but the following facts prove 
this claim to be an error. 

Ephraim Philbrick, a brother of Abigail, wife of Daniel Cady, 
died without issue in 1775, and a part of his estate was inherited 
by Jedediah, son of Daniel and Abigail Cady, and a nephew of said 
Ephraim Philbrick. Another portion of said estate was inherited 
by Moses Winter, also a nephew, and a son of Samuel and Elizabeth 
(Philbrick) Winter. This Moses Winter was a brother of Elizabeth 
Winter, who married Samuel Cady (Stephen 3, Capt. Joseph 2 , 

Nicholas 1 )- 

Daniel Cady removed from Groton, Mass., to Killingly, Conn., in 
1707, then known as Aspinock, and settled on a farm adjoining that 
of his uncle, Capt. Joseph Cady, where he resided till 1721, when 



32 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

he is said to have removed for a short time to Tolland. He was o 
Canterbury in 1725 and again of Killingly in 1730. In the spring 
of 1 741 Daniel Cady and son Timothy of Killingly purchased of 
Samuel Chapman of Tolland 245 acres of land in the town of 
Stafford, Conn. " Said land lieth toward the North West corner of 
said township. The consideration paid was ^430, current money. 
The deed was dated April 21, 1741." It was recorded March 26, 
1742, in Stafford Town Records, vol. 2, p. 68. It is said they were 
the first persons by the name of Cady to own land in Stafford. Its 
location as near as can be ascertained was on what is now an 
abandoned road running east and west, north of what is known as 
Pond Hill and a mile or more southwest of what is called Ziklag 
Schoolhouse, in the northwest district.* 

After the death of Daniel Cady, the Stafford farm came into the 
possession of his sons, Timothy and Jonas,* for whose benefit the 
farm had been purchased. Daniel Cady's farm in Killingly finally 
passed into the possession of William Larned, who built a large 
house thereon, which is still standing (1895), forming a part of the 
residence of William Plumer.

He served as town and society clerk, Deputy to the General Court, 
and held for many years the office of Justice. He was a man of 
substantial and progressive ideas ; foremost in every scheme for 
public advancement. He was a constituent member of Pomfret's 
Farmers' Library Association of 1739. He built for his daughter 
Damaris, the wife of Rev. Pearley Howe, the gambrel-roofed house 
still standing on Putnam Heights, and sent his grandson, Joseph 
Howe, to Yale College. He was the first man to set up a coach or 
wheeled vehicle."* He was fond of reading and well versed in the 
books of his day. The first record book of Thompson Parish still 
bears testimony to his carefulness and skilled penmanship.

are found in the list of early baptisms in Killingly. The family

The statement in the Kingsbury genealogy that William Cady died 
prior to 1747 has just been disproved by an expert research under 
the direction of C. C. C. Bradley of Manchester, Iowa, as will be 
seen in the following briefs taken from the Plainfield and other 
records : 

William Cady first bought land in Plainfield in 1739 and sold it in 
1740, in which year his father gave him land in Coventry, Conn., to 
which town he removed and where he lived for some years. In 
1748 he is back in Plainfield, when he buys land there. In 1750 he 
buys more land, which he sells to son William in 1759. On Jan. 9, 
1753, he signs for his share of his father's estate, as has been shown 
in his father's record. The last record of land bought by him is in 
1762. In 1772 he was of Ashuelot Equivalent (later Windsor, 
Mass.), when he sells land in Plainfield to son-in-law David Sheperd. 
In 1777 Timothy Laraby of Windham, Conn., attorney for William 
Cady of Gageborough, Mass., sells property for him in Plainfield. 



48 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

This is the last land record we find of William Cady Sen. He 
probably settled in that part of the territory set off to Dalton, as the 
Cadys are said to have been early in that town. The family tradi- 
tion is that William Cady removed from Dalton or near vicinity to 
Saratoga, where he purchased a large tract of land which included 
the present famous Saratoga springs. The house had been or was 
then used as a hotel, and that himself and wife were buried in an 
old cemetery on or near his property. Some 15 years ago one of 
his descendants visited the cemetery, which had been long neglected, 
and the inscriptions on the gravestones had become unreadable. It 
is rather unlikely that William Sen. purchased land in Saratoga after 
1777, but it is quite likely that his grandson Jeremiah did, as he 
moved to Saratoga county, and it may be reasonable that his grand- 
father went with him. 

From the foregoing, and the finding of the record on the church 
books in Plainfield of the baptism of Eleazer, son of William and 
Phebe Cady, Oct. 15, 1749, the long-mooted question of the parent- 
age of the said Eleazer is forever set at rest, although the record in 
Eleazer Cady's Bible gives his birth as Sept. 6, 1750, instead of 
1749, but a slight discrepancy like this sometimes occurs.

At the time of his marriage he was registered from Lyme, Conn. 
He had received from his father in December, 1736, a gift of 53 
acres of land in Windsor, Conn., "next to the great river," but 
probably he did not locate upon it, for it seems that soon after 
marriage he was of Tolland, where the birth of his daughter 
Prudence is recorded. Three years later he was of Lyme, where 
the next two children were born ; then he was of Coventry, where 
the remaining children were born. Whether he returned to Lyme 
is not certain, but probably he did. He settled with his family in 
New Concord, now Canaan, Columbia county, N. Y., about 1764, 
where he remained till his death. 

It is said that all the seven sons of the family had service in the 
Revolutionary war, which speaks well for their patriotism.

Stafford cemetery. In April, 1741, Daniel Cady, with an older 
brother of Jonas, purchased a tract of 245^ acres of land in the 
northwest division of Stafford as before noted. Daniel, the father, 
bought the land for the benefit of two of his sons, Jonas and 
Timothy. As the deed was not recorded till March, 1742, it is 
presumed they did not remove to Stafford till that year. 

In Stafford Records, vol. 2, p. 131, we find that Daniel Cady 
transferred his interest in the 245 £ acres to his son Jonas as follows : 
"In consideration of ,£250 current money, well and truly paid by 
my well and beloved son, Jonas Cady of Stafford, the one moiety 
one half part of a Certain Tract or parcle of Land Containing Two 
hundred and forty five acres and half." This deed was given Jan. 9, 
1744. It would seem that the two brothers occupied the land jointly 
till 1752, when we find on the Town Records, vol. 3, p. 279, that 
each deeded to the other a half interest in the farm in consideration 
of ;£io6 in bills of public credit, thus becoming separate owners. 
The writer, with Rev. C. C. Lyon, visited this old farm in August, 
1909. It is located on a branch road turning off from the Lull 
district road near the residence of Mr. Kellogg, which leads to the 
farm of Harlow Kibbe on the west. Most of the road is now closed 
as it is not in condition for public travel, as the old Cady place is 
now without a tenant and has largely grown up to brush. The 
house, built by the brothers Jonas and Timothy before 1750, was, 
according to tradition, a large structure two stories in front and one 
in the rear, much like the illustration of the Capt. Joseph Cady 
house as found in this volume. We found the ancient foundation on 
which it was built, suited for a large building, and where a second 
and smaller house was erected which is now in utter ruins. The farm, 
was one of the most rocky in Stafford ; the old stone walls laid up 
for fences still remain in evidence of the great labor expended by the 
brothers. Why they located on such hard soil is a wonder, when 
much better land was cheap and available, yet like most of the Cady 
tribes, they were thrifty and made a success of life. In Oct., 1759, 
the General Court of Connecticut appointed and commissioned 
Jonas Cady Ensign of the 13th Company of the 5th Regt. 

According to the tradition, the families of Jonas and Timothy 
Cady, with others in the neighborhood, often repaired at nightfall to 
the large house which stood on the present site of the Dea. Alden 
Davis house in Somers, for mutual protection against the roving

ii. Jacob, b. Tolland, Nov. 30, 1740. 
iii. Mercy, b. Tolland, Jan. 23, 1743/4.

53. Dr. Aaron 4 Cady, (Aaron 3, James 2 , Nicholas 1 ), b. Canter- 
bury, Conn., Dec. 7, 1718; m. Nov. 8, 1738, No. Stonington, Conn., 
Ann Palmer.* In reply to the inquiry about the parentage of Ann 
Palmer, who married Aaron Cady, Judge Wheeler, author of the 
History of Stonington, Conn., says that by mistake he left out her 
name, and that she was the daughter of Jonathan and Mercy 
(Manning) Palmer, and sister of Prudence, who married Ebenezer 
Cady, both being married at the same time. 

Immediately after marriage Aaron Cady settled in Coventry, 
Conn., as indicated by this entry on the Coventry records, Nov. 29, 

1738. 

"Aaron Cady of Coventry, to son Aaron Cady Jr., and Ann Cady 
his wife, 20 acres for ^20." 

The next entry is as follows : 

"Jan. 23, 1739/40, Aaron Cady and his wife Annah Cady of 
Coventry to Ebenezer Stiles of Coventry ^115 for 20 acres." 

On April 9, 1739, we find Aaron Cady in Tolland, and on June 
23, 1740, he had a deed of land in Tolland from his father. The 
last record of him in Tolland is in 1741. We find him in Canter- 
bury, Dec. 7, 1 746, when the birth of his son Nathaniel is recorded ; 
and lastly there in 1752, when his dau. Elizabeth was born. Shortly 
after this he seems to have removed to Stonington, Conn. In a 
letter from J. Cady Brown of Minaville, N. Y., written in 1868 to 
Prof. D. C. Eaton, he says his great-grandfather, Aaron Cady, "was 
a doctor and died in Groton or Stonington, Conn. He married 
Ann Palmer, had children," etc., as given below. Some of the 
dates I have added from other sources. 

Children :

ii. Aaron, b. abt. 1743; settled and died in Chatham,

In May, 1772, while on a visit to Boston, he preached a single 
sermon in the New South church which so pleased the people that 
he received a call to the pastorate at once. He was installed as 
pastor May 19, 1773, but on account of the occupation of the 
city by the British he was forced to leave, and while on a visit to 
Hartford he was attacked by a sudden illness from which he died 
Aug. 25, 1775. He was a man of brilliant mind and of powerful 
eloquence, and his untimely end was lamented by all.*

at the remarkable age of 103 years; he d. Shutesbury, Mass., April 
8, 1799. Elizabeth 4 Winter was the dau. of Samuel 3, John 2 , John 1 . 
Her great-grandfather, John Winter, came from England in 1633 and 
settled in Watertown, Mass., his occupation being that of a tanner. 
Two of his sons, Richard and Thomas, and a daughter, Alice, 
remained in London, from which fact it is inferred that he also was 
of that city. He d. April 14, 1662, at the age of 90, leaving his 
property to his son John, who settled at Cambridge Farms, where he 
d. Jan. 18, 1690. SamueU Winter, b. March 16, 1684/5, settled 
early in Killingly, where he became a large land owner. He married 
Elizabeth Philbrick in Groton, Mass., Nov. 18, 1690, dau. of 
Ephraim3 Philbrick, John 2 , Thomas 1 . This Thomas came from 
Lincolnshell, England, in 1630, and settled in Watertown. The wife 
of John 2 Philbrick was Ann Palmer. The wife of Ephraim^ Phil- 
brick and mother of Elizabeth, wife of Samuel Winter, was Elizabeth, 
dau. of Ellis 2 Barron, Ellis 1 . The elder Ellis Barron was of Water- 
town before 1641, where he was Constable and Selectman. His son 
Ellis settled in Lancaster, Mass., and married Hannah, dau. of 
Timothy Hawkins, who came to Watertown in 1635. 

On Feb. 3, 1748/9, Samuel Cady received from his father, as a 
part of his portion, a gift by deed of seven acres of land, situated 
on the county road from Woodstock to Providence, adjoining to 
land of Benjamin Cady. June 4, 1756, Samuel Cady bought of 
William Farmer of Killingly 60 acres of land with dwelling, etc., for 
^3000 in bills of public credit, according to old tenor.* He seems 



♦Vide Town Records of Killingly, Conn., vol. 6, p. 148. 



DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 65 

to have been a well-to-do farmer of those days. He disposed of 
his real estate in Killingly and removed to Shutesbury, Mass., in 
1764, where he bought a farm just west of the old center and where 
he spent the remainder of his life. In July, 1890, the writer visited 
Shutesbury and the old farm where Samuel Cady lived, and later 
where Robert Allen, who married his daughter, Rhoda, also lived a 
few years. The old house had been taken down about two years 
previously, leaving the stone foundations and the cellar to mark the 
site. The little garden plot surrounded by a stout stone wall still 
remained. Dr. White bought the farm about 1830 and lived there 
many years ; at the time of my visit the farm was owned by Martin 
Newell. 

Samuel Cady, like his grandfather, Capt. Joseph Cady, was not 
lacking in patriotism when his country needed his services, for not 
only himself but his three sons served in the army. His daughter, 
Rhoda, grandmother of the writer, used to relate that her father was 
three years in the army, and that her mother and daughters did duty 
on the farm in his absence. The services of Samuel Cady and his 
sons, Jason, Jeremiah and Samuel, are found on the Revolutionary 
records at the statehouse in Boston. There is there a receipt, evi- 
dently in the handwriting of the elder Samuel, for a bounty of jQgo 
received by him for three years' service in the army, dated April 6, 
1781. 

Further evidence is found that the elder Cady enlisted as a private 
in Lt. John Trask's company of Col. David Leonard's regiment, 
Feb. 26, 1777 ; was in service 44 days and marched to Ticonderoga, 
and was discharged April 10, 1777; that he enlisted again in the 
same year, Aug. 22, in Capt. Moses Harvey's company, Col. 
Woodbury's regiment, and was discharged Nov. 22, 1777. Of his 
personal service, other than the above, I have no knowledge. The 
foregoing has been given for the benefit of any descendants of 
Samuel Cady who may desire to become Sons or Daughters of the 
Revolution, the writer having been admitted to the Society of the 
American Revolution on the above evidence.

James Leach had service in the Revolutionary war for six months 
as private, from June 26, 1776, in Capt. Asa Bacon's Co., Col. 
Chester's Regt. ; also two months in 1777 in Capt. Ephraim Lyon's 
Co., Col. Barton's Regt. ; and four months as Sergeant in Capt. 
Joseph Durke's Co., Col. Levi Wells' Regt. He was in the battle of 
White Plains, and received a pension, as did his wife for this service. 

Mr. Leach removed to Pawlet, Vt., in 1780, and settled on the 
Willard Tract, which was granted by Benning Wentworth, located 
on the east side of the old bridle path running from Bennington to 
Danby, which path was surveyed in 1773 and laid out for a highway 
in the following year. He was a carpenter and joiner, but he first 
built a log house for himself. He built the first framed house in 
town in 1785. He contracted to build about 40 barns at $40 each ? 
taking the timber from the stump and preparing it himself. He 
built the first brick house in town in 1804, making and burning the 
brick himself. This house is still standing in good condition. He 
was the chorister of the M. E. church for some years, Selectman 
from 1800 to 1809, and represented the town for several terms in the 
Vermont Legislature. Mr. Leach, being a man of forceful character, 
did much to shape the affairs of the town in early days. Both he 
and his wife bravely endured many hardships in their early pioneer 
life, but succeeded in establishing a fine home for themselves and 
children. For some years the nearest grist mill was at Bennington, 
thirty miles away. Mrs. Leach was an adept in the art of weaving,

and wrought from wool and linen for table and bedding purposes 
many elaborate patterns so highly prized in these days. In 1815, 
aged and infirm, they gave their property to their three sons to be 
cared for during the remainder of their lives, giving to their 
daughter Eunice the sum of $800 in cash.

the records of Plainfield, Conn., and near vicinity have thus far 
failed to reveal the date or to wnom William Cady was married, but i t 
is very probable that he was married before he left Plainfield to 
settle in Dalton, Mass. It is probable that he went to Dalton with 
his father about 1771, but we have but one definite record of him 
there, and that is the date of his death on the Dalton records as 
June 25, 1790, in his 60th year. We feel justified in applying this 
record to him as there was no other one of the several William 
Cadys of the locality to whom the date could refer. The widely 
separated dates of birth of his children allow us to suppose that he 
was twice married. He is said to have been one of the eleven 
proprietors of the town of Naples, Ontario Co., N. Y., in which 
township Canandaigua is now located.

who survived him. We learn from the Registry of Deeds at Pitts- 
field, Mass., that Jeremiah Cady of Plainfield, Conn., bought land in 
Windsor, Mass., July 6, 1767, of William Williams for ,£15. On 
Dec. 5, 1769, he is said to be of Windsor, where he is recorded as 
buying land there. From that date till 1780 there are eight entries 
of land transactions by Jeremiah Cady of Windsor. On Sept. 1, 
1780, Jeremiah Cady of Dal ton deeds land in that town to son 
Jeremiah Cady Jr., in presence of William Cady 3d and Phineas 
Cady, sons of Jeremiah. He doubtless reckoned his father as 
William 1st, his brother as William 2d, and his son as William 3d. 
The last entry is Feb. 24, 1786, when Jeremiah Cady sells land in 
Dalton. 

Jeremiah Cady and four of his sons, at least, sustained their 
patriotism by serving their country, for he and sons William and 
Phineas marched April 22, on the Alarm, to Cambridge, where the 
father was Major in Col. John Patterson's Regt. till Aug. 1, 1775, 
and his two sons were privates during the same time. Jeremiah 
Cady Jr., the boy of 15, enlisted in the same regiment June 3 of 
same year and served two months and three days. Another son, 
Warren Cady, enlisted Oct. 12, 1781, on an alarm, and served 18 
days. The sons William and Phineas both enlisted in the 
Continental army and served for several years. 

Jeremiah Cady died in Saratoga in 1798. His son John was 
granted letters of administration Nov. 5, 1798.* The after history 
of this family has not been ascertained by the compiler, save that of 
Jeremiah Jr.

Meeting House Hill. Rev. Isaac Foster was first settled on the old 
Congregational platform. After a few years he changed his faith 
and became a Universalist. The church became divided and so also 
was the Cady family in their belief. Hezekiah and his wife became 
Universalists, Jesse and Asa remained Calvinistic, and Jedediah 
became Methodist.

121. Judge Jesses Cady, ( Jonas4, Daniel, James 2 , Nicholas 1 ), 
b. Stafford, Conn., 1751 ; m. 1773, Jerusha, dau. of Moses Chapin 
of Somers, Conn. He d. May 8, 1810; she d. July 22, 1829. He 
resided in West Stafford, Conn., upon or near the homestead of his 
father Jonas. The Stafford Town Records, vol. 4, p. 186, show 
record of deed from Jonas to Jesse Cady of an estimated fifty acres 
for the consideration of £50 "for and in consideration of love, 
goodwill and affection, which I have and do bear to my son Jesse 
Cady of Stafford, and for other good consideration, me moving 
thereunto." The above deed is dated April 12, 1773. 

Jesse Cady filled many positions of trust. He was elected Repre- 
sentative of the town of Stafford for eleven consecutive years. He 
was appointed Justice of the Peace in 1783. In May, 1795, he 
became Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Tolland County, 
also Judge of Probate for the District of Stafford, which included at 
that time the towns of Stafford, Somers, Ellington, Tolland, Willing- 
ton and Union. He was also appointed State Attorney, May 17, 
1798. These offices he held until his death. For many years he 
served as deacon of the Congregational church in West Stafford. It 
is related that one of the first official acts which Jesse was called 
upon to perform after his appointment as Justice, was to unite a 
couple in marriage. His brother Hezekiah, thinking to surprise and 
confuse him, came to the wedding as a self-invited guest in his work- 
ing garb from the field. Jesse was equal to the occasion and turned 
the surprise upon his brother by saying that it was customary to 
have prayer offered at the close of wedding ceremonies, and invited 
Hezekiah to pray.

West Stafford, Conn., Oct. 6, 1759; m - Dec. 27, 1782, Rhoda, dau. 
of Josiah Holmes, b. Ashford, Conn., March 10, 1765. He d. Jan. 
10, 1 83 1 ; she d. May 11, 1844. They were buried in the old 
cemetery in West Stafford Street. Jedediah Cady was born in West 
Stafford, on the original homestead purchased by his grandfather, 
Daniel Cady, in 1741. He was probably named for his uncle 
Jedediah, who lived and died in Killingly. He enlisted in the war 
of the Revolution Jan. 7, 1778, in the company of Capt. Roswell 
Grant of East Windsor, Conn. He served nearly three years and 
was honorably discharged Dec. 9, 1780. The pistol that he used 
during the service is now owned by one of his grandsons. About two 
years after his discharge from military service Jedediah Cady married 
Rhoda Holmes. Her half brother, John Holmes, married Esther, 
dau. of Timothy Cady. Her sister, Sarah Holmes, married Solva 
Converse, and another sister, Mollie Holmes, married Abner Cady. 
By these marriages the Cady, Converse and Holmes families of 
Stafford first became related. 

Jedediah and Rhoda Cady settled in the immediate vicinity and 
in the same district of his birthplace. He first purchased 17^ acres 
of land of James Morris, March 13, 1783. On Oct. ro, 1786, he 
purchased of Isaac Cushman, 80 acres of land for ^200. This 
farm is located on the east side of the road from old West Stafford 
Street, or Meeting House Hill, so called, to South Wilbraham, now 
Hampden, Mass., the second farm south of the state line. This 
farm has since been known as the Walter Temple place. The farm 
north of this, adjoining the state line, was owned by his brother, 
Dea. Hezekiah Cady, and afterwards by his son, John Cady. Here 
it was that all the children of Jedediah Cady were born, with the 
possible exception of Sarah and Olive. April 15, 1807, he 
purchased of Stephen Scott, the Tray Hollow* farm of 75 acres* 
bounded and described as follows : " North on said Jedediah Cady's 
land, west on Elijah Town's, south on Daniel Carpenter's and 
Ebenezer Harris', and east on Noah Trask's land." The amount 
paid was $1300. The family removed to Tray Hollow in the spring 
of 1808. After removing to Tray Hollow Jedediah Cady "Kept 
Tavern " for a time. The house was a long one-story building with

an attic, standing on the west side of the road. Since his time it 

has been removed and replaced by a more modern dwelling. A 

perennial spring on the hillside furnished an abundant supply of 

running water for the house and barn. The out-buildings were two 

barns, a cider mill and a "Still House" for stilling cider brandy. 

The tavern sign was a square one, suspended between two posts 

opposite the house, having the picture of a lion on one side and on 

the other "Travelers' Home," with the significant motto, "Pay 

to-day, trust to-morrow." As was the custom of those days, patrons 

were served with rum or cider brandy in moderate quantity. As 

may be supposed, Jedediah Cady did not allow his house to become 

a low resort, for he was an ardent Methodist and his house was a 

meeting place for the brethren, where frequent services were held, 

and a favorite stopping place for the circuit preacher. Aunt Rhoda 

Cady was a model cook, which fact added much to the fame of the 

Tavern, and her delicious gingerbread became famous, and its sale 

on "Training Days" added many an honest penny to the household 

treasury. It is said that her skill as a cook has been inherited by 

her daughters and granddaughters down to the present time.

He enlisted as a soldier in the Revolutionary war July 18, 1782, 
served till the close of the war and was discharged in Nov., 1782. 
He went from Pomfret, Conn., and settled in Alstead, N. H., in 
1763. The record of Isaac Cady's family is not as complete as 
could be desired ; it also seems evident that the births of two sons 
at least did not have their record on the Alstead books, viz. : Noah 
and Calvin, so with great probability they have been added to the 
list here, for we find that Isaac, Noah, Jacob, Calvin and Lavina all 
settled in nearby towns in Vermont at an early date soon after 
marriage, which fact lends strength to the idea of their close relation- 
ship. The dates of birth of several of the children are tentative, 
but probably very nearly correct.

141. Jeremiah s Cady, (Samuel 4, Stephens, Capt. Joseph 2 , 
Nicholas 1 ), b. Killingly, Conn., July 17, 1752; m. Nov. 12, 1772, 
Hannah Warner, dau. of Aaron and Ruth (Sheldon) Warner of 
Amherst, Mass., bapt. June 30, 1754. Her grandfather was Jacobs, 
Joseph 2 , Andrew 1 Warner, the emigrant to Cambridge, Mass., 1632, 
of Hartford 1639, and an early settler at Hadley, Mass. Jeremiah 
Cady d. Hadley, Mass., June 4, 1848 ; his wife d. abt. 1829. 

Jeremiah Cady removed with his parents from Killingly, Conn., to 
Shutesbury, Mass., in 1764. He belonged to a race noted for its 
military spirit, and early imbibed the spirit that was stirring the 
minds of men to action. At the age of twenty-one he made a visit 
to Boston, in December, 1773, and chanced to attend that remark- 
able meeting at the Old South Church which set the pace for the 
American Spirit of Independence in the determination not to allow 
tea to be forced upon them against their will. Fired by the im- 
passioned speech of Samuel Adams, he accepted the invitation to 
join the immortal tea party that consigned the obnoxious cargo of 
tea into the hands of Neptune on the night of December 16, 1773. 
In after years he often recited the incidents of his connection with 
that tea party, and although his name does not appear in the 
imperfect list which has been published, there is no doubt that he 
was a member of the party, for he was a man of probity and not 
given to vain boasting, and with others his name was carefully 
concealed for politic reasons. 

The hill town of Shutesbury was not lacking in its expression of 
patriotism, and on one occasion when the Cadys and others had 
planted a liberty pole, Mr. Hill, the rank Tory minister of the town, 
came and ordered the rebels to disperse ; whereupon he was ordered 
himself to go home, and refusing to do so, young Jeremiah Cady 
seized him and threw him a rod in the home direction, when the 
offending one deemed it prudent to obey. Young Cady possessed a 
giant's strength, and the diminutive Mr. Hill was but a toy in his 
hands. In 1778 the Tory Hill found it convenient to leave town, 
to the great relief of every patriotic citizen. 

With such a beginning, we are not surprised to find Jeremiah 
Cady early at the front in his country's service. The archives at the 
State House in Boston show the following : 

"Jeremiah Cady, Shutesbury, Capt. Dickinson's Co., Col. Benj. 
Ruggles' Regt., received for advanced pay, dated Charlestown, July 



DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 119 

2 7> 1775-" Also, "Private, same Co. and Regt. on muster roll, 
dated Aug. i, 1775, enlisted May 15, 1775, served 2 mos. 21 days." 
Also, "Company return dated Prospect Hill, Sept. 28, 1775." 
Also, " Order for bounty coat, or its equivalent in money ; dated 
Camp near Prospect Hill, Oct. 25, 1775." 

He was at the battle of Bunker Hill, and it is a tradition in the 
family that after six men had been shot down at a certain cannon 
he quickly volunteered to take the position and kept it, doing good 
service without harm to himself. The length of his service in the 
army is not definitely known, although his family assert that it was 
during the war. 

Soon after 1800 he moved with his family to Friendship, 
Allegany Co., N. Y., then 1 wilderness. A few years later he moved 
to Henrietta, Monroe Co., N. Y. Then the country was just being 
settled and no place had been provided for Sunday service ; so after 
getting their log house in order Mrs. Cady, who with her husband 
was deeply religious, observed to her neighbors that it did not seem 
right to spend Sunday without some devotional service. She invited 
them to her house, which invitation was gladly accepted ; Mr. Cady 
opened the meeting with prayer and Mrs. Cady read portions of 
Scripture, and others took part. This custom was continued till a 
Congregational church was organized in 1818. Jeremiah Cady's 
name appears as one of its members. He later removed to Cuba, 
Monroe Co., to live with one of his children, but after the death of 
his wife he returned to Massachusetts and spent his last days with 
his daughter Salome, Mrs. David Cook, in Hadley, where he was 
kindly cared for in his extreme old age.

iii. Rev. John Clarence Allen, D. D., b. July 28, 1848; m. 
1874, Julia I. Johnson. Dr. Allen comes from an 
ancestry distinguished for religious constancy. His 
ancestors for generations were Baptists, and in 
his early home he was surrounded by religious in- 
fluences which shaped his future career. He 
received his preparatory education in Wallingford 
high school, and in Black River Academy, Ludlow, 
Vt., and was graduated with highest oratorical 
and other honors at Madison (now Colgate) Uni- 
versity, Hamilton, N. Y., in 1S74. He entered 
upon his first pastorate in Newark, N. Y., in 1875, 
followed in order of time by pastorates in Elizabeth, 
N. Y., Hanson Place Baptist church, Brooklyn, 
N. Y., and Bergen Baptist church, Jersey City, in 
all of which charges success has crowned his efforts 
and large numbers have been added, and more than 
seven hundred have been baptized by him. In the 
midst of a revival in Bergen church his health 
broke down, and he has since preached only as 
strength and opportunity have permitted. In 1895 
the deserved degree of D. D. was accorded him. 
He has been influential in raising large sums for his 
denomination, and his activity in temperance and 
other reform work is highly commendable. He is 
also active in a number of social organizations.

1878, and has been one of the trustees since; was the prime mover 
in establishing the Palmer Historical Society in 1899, and has since 
been its Curator. Since 1885 he has written voluminous sketches of 
local history for the press, and since 1890 has devoted much time to 
the subject of genealogy, having during the time compiled and 
published the genealogies of the families of Samuel Lee, Abraham 
Doolittle, John Fairman, Edward Allen, William and John Scott, 
Samuel Allen, and last, the present volume of the descendants of 
Nicholas Cady. His line of descent runs thus: O. P. 6 Allen, 
(Roberts, Robert 4, Joseph 3, Nathaniel 2 , Edward 1 ), which Edward 
migrated from London about 1690 and settled on Nantucket Island. 
He is a lineal descendant from five Mayflower ancestors, viz : Gov. 
John Carver, Katherine his wife, John Tilley, Elizabeth his daughter 
and granddaughter of Gov. Carver, and John Howland, who married 
Elizabeth Tilley. He has two colonial ancestors who fought in the 
Indian war, viz. : Capt. Joseph Cady and Capt. Aaron Cook, and 
four ancestors who served in the Revolutionary war, viz. : Samuel 
Cady, Shutesbury, Mass., Joseph Allen, Newport, R. I., Ebenezer 
Burt, Deerfield, Mass., and Townshend, Vt., in battle of Bennington, 
etc., and Lieut. Amzi Doolittle, Townshend, Vt., in Gen. Samuel 
Fletcher's Regt. Sept., 1782; each of whom was a great-grand- 
father. Mrs. Allen has a Colonial war ancestor in the person of 
Capt. Moses Scott, and three Revolutionary war ancestors in the 
persons of Lt. Dea. Oliver Noyes, Stephen Johnson and Ebenezer 
Scott, so that their children are entitled to have five bars if they 
join the Sons or Daughters of the Revolution. 

In politics, Mr. Allen has always been a Republican ; is a member 
of the Masonic fraternity and of the Sons of the American Revolu- 
tion, and of the Second Congregational church of Palmer. Is a 
local secretary of the Connecticut Valley Historical Society, and 
Curator of the Palmer Historical Society.

Watts, 34 guns. It was a drawn battle, but the Watts had the worst 
punishment. The Trumbull went to Boston for repairs and then 
sailed on another cruise for South Carolina. After his return home 
from this cruise he began the study of navigation with the view of 
fitting himself for a higher naval position, but the closing of the 
war induced him to abandon the project. Three of his brothers 
also had service in the war. Immediately after marriage he settled 
(1785) in Hartland, Vt., removing thence in 1789 to the adjoining 
town of Windsor, where he lived till his death.

King was b. Feb. n, 1846, Hartford, Conn., in which city he 
received his education. His business, that of a wagon builder and 
painter, has been continued in his branch of the King family from 
the first ancestors who came to this country early in the seventeenth 
century. Mr. King has never been excelled in his line of business, 
either in Hartford or Somersville, where he still continues his trade. 
Mrs. King obtained her education in the schools of Stafford and 
Somers, and at Wilbraham Academy. After marriage she devoted 
her best energies to the interests of her family, and like her grand- 
mother, Rhoda Holmes Cady, excelled in the noble art of cooking. 
She conscientiously trained her children in the right ways of living, 
aiding them in gaining a higher education, and their later success in 
life is an abiding tribute to the faithful discharge of a mother's trust. 
The death of her eldest son in a coasting accident caused her such 
grief that it induced a disease of the eye, which eventually nearly 
deprived her of vision, but her natural energy did not forsake her, 
and later she has devoted her time to the making of rugs, whose 
beauty is a wonder to her friends.

Mayro Keeney, son of Rockwell Keeney, b. Manchester, Conn., 
July 14, 1862. Res. Somersville, Conn. At the age of thirteen, 
while Alice Billings was attending the graded school in Somersville, 
her teacher was forced to leave her position because of illness, and 
greatly to her surprise, young Alice was asked by the school 
directors to finish the term as teacher. The school directors' 
confidence in her intellectual and executive ability was not 
mispleased, and her success was so notable that she was requested 
to fill the same position for another term. She then decided to fit 
herself more thoroughly for teaching and entered Hazardville high 
school, and later went to Wilbraham Academy, after which she 
spent two years in successful teaching, when, as often happens, she 
accepted a permanent position in matrimonial union. 

Mr. Keeney finished his education with a three-years' course in 
Wilbraham Academy, and then engaged service in the Somersville 
Mfg. Co., owned by his father and brothers, where he gained a 
thorough knowledge of the woolen business in all of the departments, 
and was admitted into the firm. In 1904, an account of his health, 
he left service in the mill but still retaining an interest in the same, 
and engaged in dairy farming, which he continues with marked skill 
and success. In 1903 he was elected to represent Somers in the 
Connecticut Legislature, and served as a member of the finance 
committee. He was reelected the following year, and was appointed 
chairman of the finance committee. In 1906 he was elected 
Senator from the 35th district and was appointed chairman of the 



222 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

committees on banking and school funds, and a member of the 

labor committee, in each of which he was influential. In 1908 he 

was chosen Commissioner of Tolland County, which position he 

still holds.

The above Robert Mayro Keeney, after attending the schools of 
his village entered Hazardville high school, and later Hartford high 
school, where he graduated with honors and as president of his 
class in 1905. He was considered the ablest athlete of the school; 
was captain of the track team for 1904, and won the " Best Athletic 
Cup" for the school two years in succession. In the fall of 1905 he 
entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a course of 
study in mining engineering. In 1907 he transferred his course of 
study to the School of Mining in Golden, Col., where he intends to 
obtain his degree in 19 10. 

The above Grace Mabelle Keeney, after a course of study in her 
native town and in Hazardville high school, desiring to cultivate a 
natural gift for music, has entered the Whiting School of Music in 
Boston, where she is making such good progress that she will doubt- 
less remain and finish the course. 

The foregoing Flora May King, dau. of Ralph and L. Lomyra 
(Davis) B. King, after receiving her education in the graded schools 
of Somersville, Conn., finding no opportunity to enter a higher 
institution of learning, imposed upon herself the task of devoting a 
part of each day to the study of the higher branches, which she 
rapidly mastered, such was her intense interest in them. Then to fit 
herself for teaching she took up a correspondence normal course for 
teachers, which she succeeded in passing very creditably. In 1893 
she began teaching in a district school in Somers, where she 
remained for two years, when she was promoted to a position in the 
intermediate department in the Somersville school, remaining there 
four years, or until 1899, when she was advanced to the grammar 
department, where she remained five years, during which time she 
was gradually promoted till she had the oversight of the entire 
building. At the expiration of this time she resigned to accept a

higher position as principal of a school in Southington, Conn., 
where she was popular and successful ; but being offered a still 
higher position in the Northwest School of Hartford, she resigned 
and accepted it, beginning work in her new charge in September, 
1905, where she has found the work so congenial that she has 
remained there till the present time, 1909. About 1897 Miss King 
became interested with her cousin, D. H. Cady, in gathering 
records of the descendants of Daniel Cady of Stafford, Conn. She 
became so interested in the work that she continued the research after 
Mr. Cady's death in 1902. At a meeting of the Holmes-Cady Asso- 
ciation in 1906 it was voted that O. P. Allen of Palmer, Miss Flora 
M. King of Somersville and F. W. Cady of East Providence be a 
committee to put in proper form for publishing such records of the 
descendants of Nicholas Cady of Water town, Mass., 1645, as were 
obtainable, and O. P. Allen was invited to perform the task of 
compiling the same. The compiler of this work is pleased to take 
this occasion to testify to the faithful and patient manner in which 
Miss King has performed the part assigned her. 

The foregoing Edith Mary King, m. June 27, 1901, Alfred M. 
Smith, b. Cheshire, Conn., Feb. 18, 1875. Res. Southington, Conn. 
Miss King received her education in the graded schools of Somers- 
ville, later taking courses of instruction to fit her for teaching. She 
began teaching in a district school in her native town at an early 
age, rising to a position in the intermediate department of the 
Somersville school. She resigned her position there to take a more 
lucrative one in Southington, Conn., where she was advanced to the 
position of principal of the largest school in town, where she taught 
eleven years with success, the last seven years as principal. She is a 
member of the First Congregational church of Southington, and of 
the Hannah Woodruff chapter of the D. A. R., being a prominent 
member in both organizations. 

Mr. Smith began his education in his native town and graduated 
from the Lewis high school of Southington in 1893. He has been 
bookkeeper for the At water Mfg. Co. of Somersville since 1901. He 
is highly esteemed by all who know him, and is an active member of 
St. Paul's Episcopal church, in which he has served as choir master 
lay reader, and superintendent of the Sunday school.

graded and high schools of Somersville. She began teaching in her 
native town in 1898, and was soon promoted to a position in the 
intermediate department in the Somersville school, where she wrought 
with her sister Flora for four years with notable success, making, 
with the exception of one year's interim, fourteen consecutive years 
of teaching service rendered by the King sisters. In 1904 she 
accepted an invitation to teach in Southington, Conn., where her 
pleasing address and original way of imparting instruction won her 
great favor with all. She resigned here to take a better position in a 
Hartford school, where after two years of successful work she 
resigned to enter the matrimonial state.

Conn., and is now in the employ of the Stevens-Duryea Automobile 
Co. of Chicopee, Mass. 

The foregoing Jeannie Louise King received her early education 
in the common and high schools of Somers, from the latter of 
which she graduated with honor and as the class prophet at the 
early age of fifteen. Then she taught school two years in her 
native town most acceptably. In 1905 she entered the New Britain 
Normal School, where she was popular and was chosen the president 
of her class. She made such rapid progress in study that she 
graduated in 1907, and soon after accepted a position in the 
Northeast School of Hartford, where with her sister Flora she is 
making an excellent record as a teacher. The preceding five King 
sisters are holders of Connecticut State teachers' certificates. The 
sketches regarding them have been made more full than is usual in 
a work of this nature for an object lesson, showing how patient 
persistence can overcome difficulties and win abundant success. 

The foregoing Howard Ernest King, son of Ralph and L. 
Lomyra Davis B. King, was educated in the Somersville schools, the 
Hazardville high school, and graduated with honor from the Enfield 
high school in June, 1905. His natural testes inclined him to a 
collegiate course, but difficulties seemed to bar the way, so he

thoroughly learned his father's trade and has already become an 
expert in the business, and no doubt will win success.

1832, Maria Hendrick. He d. April 14, 1889; she d. Sept. 15, 
1891. When his father was informed that a son was born to him he 
said : " He is welcome," so the name Welcome Jedediah was given 
him. He was born in Tray Hollow and spent his boyhood there, 
also the first year of his married life in conducting the farm left him 
by his father. The next year he sold the farm for $1800 to his 
brother-in-law, Noah Chapin. He then removed to Stafford Street 
and engaged in conducting a general store in partnership with 
Eznall Winter. After two years he sold his interest and went to 
Willington and opened another store on his own account, selling out 
after two years. In 1S39 he settled in Agawam Parish, West 
Springfield, Mass., where he bought real estate and made brick till 
1845, when he removed to Enfield, Conn., bought land, built a 
house and continued brick making and built several brick houses. 
In 1855 he began the manufacture of wines from native fruits, 
which increased in quantity and general favor, until in 1885 there 
was a stock on hand of several thousand gallons, being the largest in 
Southern New England. After the stock was sold the manufacture 
was discontinued. His son Dwight was taken into partnership in 
1862. Welcome J. Cady was brought up in the faith of the 
Methodist denomination, but after he removed to Enfield he became 
a Second Adventist. He was a man of deep religious faith, just and 
honest in all his dealings, and respected by all.

The above Daniel H. Johnson, obtained his education in his native 
town and in Killingly Academy. He became proficient in the 
higher mathematics and in Latin and English, and for several years 
was a successful teacher in the public schools of R. I. and 
Conn. Later he learned the carpenter's trade and became a con- 
tractor and builder with sufficient architectural knowledge to draw 
and plan his own buildings, following his profession in the borough 
of Danielson, Conn., until his death. He was one of the foremost 
men of the community, and for many years was on the board of 
Alderman of Danielson. He married, early in life, Maria Stone, 
which union proved a happy one. No children were born to them. 
He was successful in business and left a handsome property, and 
best of all — an honored memory. 

The above Jerry Johnson also gained his education in the schools 
of Brooklyn and in Killingly Academy. He taught school for 
several terms, and took a position as a clerk in a store. Inheriting 
a love for military life from his grandsires, he enlisted, 1861, in the 
first Conn. Heavy Artillery, Army of the Potomac, and served 
through the war. After the war he engaged with the Norwich Lock 
Mfg. Co., Norwich, Conn., where he resided during the remainder 
of his life. He married Ida Thompson, by whom he had a son and 
two daughters. He m. (2) Ella Bogue, who survives him. He was

a member of the First M. E. church of Norwich, also of the Grand 
Army. He was highly esteemed for the consistent and even tenor 
of his life. 

The above George Cady Johnson passed his childhood on the 
"Cady Place" in Brooklyn, Conn., inherited by his mother from her 
father, Capt. Samuel Cady. His early school days were spent in 
the public schools of Brooklyn and the Killingly Academy. Later 
he went to Worcester, Mass., and entered the employ of Hamilton 
& Dodge in the printing office of the " Palladium." He attended 
the B. G. Howe Business College, and also began the study of 
instrumental music under the instruction of Miss Sarah B. Collyer, 
after which he returned to the Brooklyn farm and taught music to 
private pupils, conducted the choir music of the Brooklyn Baptist 
church, of which he became a member, from 1864, to the present, 
and finished his schooling in the Danielson high school in the study 
of Latin and Greek, and other preparatory studies. Having finished 
school in 1876, he engaged to travel for the Appleton Publishing 
Company with and under the direction of his cousin, Emily L. 
Cady, a long experienced agent for the same firm then operating in 
Pennsylvania. On this tour he visited the Centennial Exposition at 
Philadelphia, and terminated these labors in Baltimore, Md. Here 
he was elected a teacher in the State reformatory institution "The 
House of Refuge," in which capacity he remained for over twelve 
years, at the same time filling the position of instructor of vocal 
music and chapel organist, and lastly taking on also the office of 
Assistant Superintendent. He also filled the position of organist of 
Trinity (Episcopal) church, Broadway, Baltimore; and in the same 
city he devoted much time to the study of art, carrying on art study 
after this in N. Y. City, in private schools and in the Academy of 
Art and Design at 23d street and 4th avenue. Being a lover of 
nature and travel he took the opportunity on summer vacations to 
visit the resorts of beautiful scenery in our own land, such as 
Niagara, the White Mountains, Chicago and the Great Lakes, the 
Hudson, Saratoga Springs, Mt. Vernon, and the delightful ocean 
voyage from Baltimore to Boston. Attracted to the Pacific coast, he 
continued his natural inclination for travel and research, and in 
January, 1892, sailed from New York City for Seattle via the 
Isthmus of Panama, visiting with pleasure and profit many Spanish 
ports of the Pacific with camera and brush, carrying away sketches 



DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 233 

of many quaint and historic sites. During his first year in Seattle 
he was elected president of the Seattle Art League. In the 
following year he was engaged as teacher in the public schools of 
Washington, and has continued this work for the past eighteen years 
to date, 1909, with only the interval of one year, when he 
conducted a general store and served as postmaster in the ancient 
town of Seabeck, Wash., doing a successful business, but out of 
love for schools he resigned the position and returned to teaching, 
in which work he is still engaged (Nov. 1909), thus having taught 
with more than ordinary success for over thirty years. He is a 
member of these orders : Ancient Order of United Workmen, 
Masonic Order, Royal Arch, Eastern Star, Knights of Pythias, and 
has maintained his relationship as a consistent member of the 
Brooklyn Baptist church since the date of uniting in 1864. He 
has never married, but has found opportunity to do much 
philanthropic work for the neglected and orphans, devoting to such 
purposes more means in general than reserved for personal use, 
although he enjoys the reputation of being one of the substantial 
property owners of the incorporated town of Port Orchard, county 
seat of Kissup Co., Wash., where he resides and is surrounded by 
many friends and associates.

now Granville, Vt., and has been credited with a family of 17 sons 
and 2 daughters, but I have been unable to obtain any record save

279. Noah 6 Cady, (Isaacs, Phineas-*, Daniels, Daniel 2 , 
Nicholas 1 ), b. abt. 1767. The first reliable mention of this Noah 
Cady is found in the U. S. census of Vermont in 1790, which locates 
him in Hancock, Vt., and gives him a household of one male and 
one female, from which we may infer that he had just been married. 
The town of Hancock was first settled in 1788 and organized in 
1792, when Noah Cady was elected the first Constable. He 
remained in town until 1820, when he removed to Braintree, Vt., 
where he died in 1848. The date of his marriage and name of his 
wife have not been learned. While the fact has not been proved, it 
is supposed with great probability that Noah was the son of Isaacs 
of Alstead, N. H. Isaac 6 , a known son of Isaacs of Alstead, settled 
in Greenville ; Jacob, another known son, settled in Royalton, and a 
daughter, Lavina, settled in Concord, while Calvin, a supposed son, 
settled in Roxbury. All removed to Vermont at about the same 
time, with ages allowing them to be members of the same family. 
The children of Noah Cady were b. in Hancock, Vt., with one 
exception.

where he took up his location and began improve- 
ments on a large scale, and is said to have con- 
tributed to the promotion of the interests of the 
city more than any other person. Although averse 
to politics, he was induced to accept the Whig 
nomination for Governor of Wisconsin in 1851 and 
was elected to the office, filling the gubernatorial 
chair from 1852 till Jan. 2, 1854. In 1863 he was 
appointed by President Lincoln assistant examiner 
in the patent office in Washington and was pro- 
moted to principal examiner three months later, 
holding the position 9 years. He resigned and a 
few years later removed to Grant City, Mo., to 
spend his days.*

related above, when the firm was dissolved and stock disposed of. 
Mr. Cady then opened the same business in Watertown, Wis., which 
he disposed of in 1857 and became associated with a large firm in 
New York City in the same line. Later he was with Janes & 
Lapham of Pittsburgh, of the great iron and steel works. In 1878

Mr. Cady came from a long line of cultured and distinguished 
ancestry. He was a resident of Brooklyn, N. Y., from 1825 to 
1865. He was admitted to the bar in 1844 and commenced 
practice in New York City, where he continued a lawyer until about 
1870. At the age of 25 he was elected an Alderman of Brooklyn, 
and became chairman of the Judiciary of the board. At the close 
of his term in 1840 he was chosen as City Attorney. In 1851 he 
was elected to the New York Legislature and was placed at the head 
of the Committee on the Codification of the Laws, which was 
adopted by both branches of the Legislature and has since 
continued the code of procedure in New York. He also served as 
chairman of the Committee on Emigration, and had his suggestions 
adopted against great opposition by interested parties, which 
suggestions have been carried out by New York and Congress. He 
served with great distinction during two sessions of the Legislature, 
and was unanimously nominated for a third term but declined the 
honor. He served for several years as counsel for the City Water 
Board, and his plans were carried out against strong opposition. In 
1859 he was elected to the office of Registrar, and later was 
appointed one of the Judges of Brooklyn, and during the draft was 
efficient in raising a regiment and was offered the position of 
Colonel, which he declined. In 1870 he met with severe financial 
losses, but undaunted he began life anew and won success out of 
failure. In 1875 he removed to Washington, D. C, where he took 
rank with the ablest lawyers and renewed the success of his earlier 
years. As a lawyer he was judicial, keenly analytical, and prepared 
his cases with great care. He was a lover of the classics, poetry 
and the Bible, and above all a devoted Christian, and ever sustained 
a character above reproach.*

Petty, b. Providence, R. I., Oct. 12, 1804, d. April 28, 1882 ; he d. 
in Providence, July 18, 1886. Both are buried in the North 
Cemetery of Providence. Mr. Cady in early boyhood moved with 
his father to Jewett City, Conn., where he entered a cotton mill and 
became a bobbin boy, where he continued until the age of 18, when 
he went to Providence and engaged with Cyrus Manchester as a 
carpenter's apprentice, and remained till of age. After this he 
formed two partnerships in succession for conducting the business of 
house building with much success until he was about 30 years of 
age. Being of a highly religious temperament, he had in early life 
united with the Old First M. E. church, and was active in its field of 
work. In 1831 he obtained a license to preach, and although 
hampered by a limited education he was soon invited to join the 
N. E. Conference, and such was his natural talent, fostered by 
such study as he could devote to his chosen work, that he filled his 
various appointments with approbation for many years as follows in 
succession, viz. : Warwick circuit, Webster and Holland, Mass., 
Newport, Portsmouth, R. I., Attleboro, Milford, Mass., Pawtucket, 
Bristol, R. I., New Bedford, Mass., Willimantic, Tolland Mission, 
Conn., and South Providence, R. I. In 1S54 he was placed on the 
supernumerary list, but continued to supply for several years. In 
several of his appointments he built churches or closed up the work 
begun by others. About 1858 he built a house in Providence, where 
he lived until his death. He was a man of fervent piety, stern 
integrity, faithful in his work as a builder or as minister, possessing a 
kindness of heart which endeared him to all, living a life which fully 
exemplified the best virtues of a Christian.

Dr. Cady Jr. practiced medicine for about forty years with a 
success rarely met with. His practice extended to the different 
towns bordering on his own, and even into and beyond the city of 
Auburn. As was the case with his father, he never could or would 
refuse to respond to the calls of the poor and needy, and never tried 
to enforce the collection of an account against them. Being a man 
of great ability he was often solicited to take positions of trust but 
always declined to do so, preferring to give his whole attention to 
his chosen profession. Both the Dr. and his excellent wife were 
consistent and honored members of the Baptist church of Sennett.

promoting the exaltation of her sex before the law. She lived long 
enough to command the respect of all and witness the accomplish- 
ment of many of her cherished plans, and win the gratitude of 
woman for all time. She had a leading hand in producing that 
standard work, "The History of Woman Suffrage," in three 
volumes. Her marriage to Mr. Stanton was singularly fortunate, for 
he was in full accord with his wife's views. He was one of the 
early anti-slavery agitators, and a journalist who won many honors in 
the advocacy of what he deemed right. He was also a born orator

Mr. White is descended from " the Puritans of old 
England, and in this country he traces his genealogy 
through a long line of God-fearing ancestors to 
John White, who twelve years after the landing of 
the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth first settled at 
Cambridge in 1632. It is a distinguishing charac- 
teristic of the White family to have always enjoyed 
the confidence and esteem of their neighbors, as 
witness Nathaniel, son of John, a member of the 
General Court or Legislature of Connecticut from

1659 to 1 7 10; his last election was his 85 th, and 
his age 81. In those days an election was held for 
each session, and many times more than one session 
was held during the year. 

"After receiving a New England high school educa- 
tion Mr. White entered early upon a business 
career, first in Boston and later in Springfield, Mass. 
In 1 87 1 he removed to Memphis, Tenn., and 
engaged in the insurance business. In 1877, at the 
request of the receivers of the Mutual Life 
Insurance Company of St. Louis, he removed to 
that city to assist them, and there he has since 
resided. In January, 1883, he became Deputy 
Circuit Clerk, and with the exception of two years 
spent as secretary of a mining company, he held 
that very important position for a period of twenty 
years, serving under three Republican and two 
Democratic clerks. He discharged with great zeal 
and fidelity the numerous and exacting duties of 
that office." 

Mr. White was made a Mason in De Soto lodge, No. 
299, Memphis, Tenn., in 1874, and since then he 
has successfully passed to the highest degrees in 
Masonry, including the Scottish Rite, and has held 
and honorably filled many of the highest official 
positions in the order. In 1908-1909 he held the 
office of Grand High Priest of R. A. Masons of 
Missouri. " Few men and few Masons have such a 
fine record of activity and useful service."*

As a boy Mr. Cady was studious and well behaved in school, a 
good scholar and a general favorite with teachers and fellow-pupils. 
He received his education in the public schools of Thompsonville, 



366 DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 

Conn., and graduated there from the high school in 1858. He then 
took a course of study in the Sufheld Institute for a year, and began 
life with a good business education. Being an only son it was 
natural for him to remain with his father and enter into business 
with him as a partner under the firm name of W. J. Cady & Son. 
He was financially successful in all of his undertakings. After living 
just fifty years in Thompsonville, he left the homestead in the hands 
of his son-in-law, J. W. Parker, and moved to Springfield, Mass., 
where he purchased a home, and in which city he resided until 
death. During the last years of his life he became much interested 
in his Cady ancestry, and collected nearly a complete record of the 
descendants of his grandfather, Jedediah Cady, having spent much 
time in searching the town and family records for correct data. In 
connection with these families he also collected considerable material 
from other branches and arranged it in proper form for ready 
reference and with a possible view of publishing the same. The 
compiler of this volume is gratefully indebted to the patient research 
of Mr. Cady for much valuable material. It was due to his fore- 
sight that the Holmes-Cady Reunion Association was formed and 
still continues its pleasant and profitable annual meetings, a full 
account of which will be found in the appendix of this volume. 
Mr. Cady's parents were Second Adventists and he was in sympathy 
with them in faith, although he did not identify himself with that 
body of believers until he was past 40 years of age, after which he 
was a firm believer in the doctrines which they advocated and a 
staunch supporter of the same, giving of his time, money and 
influence to the cause he so much loved. He held positions of trust 
in the church and in the camp meeting association of Springfield 
Mass., having served for several years as superintendent of the 
camping ground. His honesty was never questioned. He was a 
man of good financial ability and his advice was often sought by 
young business men. His sterling qualities of mind and heart, his 
serene and cheerful intercourse with his fellow-men, his abiding 
Christian faith attracted a large circle of friends by whom he was 
sincerely mourned when parted from them by death.

in Dryden, N. Y., in 181 6, and added to it from time to time until 
it contained about 600 acres, mostly cleared from heavy timber and 
stumps and put in a high state of cultivation. Mr. Cady was one of 
the wealthiest citizens of his town, and did as much to improve and 
elevate all of the farming and business interests of his adopted town 
as any citizen who ever resided in it. He was an active and hearty 
supporter of all important public interprises. He contributed $7000 
towards building the Southern Central Railroad after he was 75 years 
old. He was a man of conceded ability and rare good judgment, as 
well as a man of strictest integrity. He held several important town 
offices, including that of Supervisor, for several terms, and he was a 
member of the State Legislature during the years 1850 and 1857, 
and gave entire satisfaction to his constituents.

as was his own personality. " It was characteristic of the man who 
had played the violin, taught the young people to dance, and had 
been the most popular prompter in Eastern Connecticut for nearly 
half a century." The uniqueness of the shaft consists in the 
emblems and inscriptions carved thereon. On one side is cut a 
violin, above which are the words, "All Ready, Mr. Cady," and 
below it, "At Rest." On the opposite side is the figure of a cow, 
with the inscription, " Rosie, my first Jersey cow ; " above the figure 
and below it, "Record: 2 lbs. and 15 ounces of butter from one 
day's milk." On the third side is the name, " Mary J. Lee," and 
beneath the name, "She was kind to dumb animals." And on the 
fourth side the family inscription. No ch.

of 1904 was spent in Buffalo, where she acted as 
superintendent. In the fall of the same year she went 
to California, hoping to recruit her failing health ; 
the result was not favorable and she returned to the 
Home in Philadelphia, where she was tenderly 
cared for by those to whom she had endeared her- 
self by the beauty and purity of her character and 
her devotion and loyalty to the Master, until the 
peaceful end came to relieve her suffering. After 
the funeral service, all that was mortal of one who 
had wrought so well for others was taken to New 
York to be laid to rest among her kindred in 
Woodlawn cemetery.

his brother, Dr. Clark S. Cady of Warsaw, N. Y. In 1871 he located 
in Kenton, O., and for ten years experimented in producing a 
process for porcelain dental plates that would give uniform strength 
with uniform thickness, and was granted a patent for the United 
States, which enabled him to excell in the manufacture of porcelain 
teeth and dental plates. He later removed to Delaware, O., that his 
children might have the advantages of school and college life, in 
which they all finished their education. Dr. Cady practiced the 
dental art until 1903, when ill health caused his retirement from 
active life. He is now (19 10) a resident of Toledo, O.

Mr. Cady entered Middlebury College in 1877 ; after two years 
he went to Aurora, 111., as assistant in Jennings Seminary, then under 
the charge of his brother, Martin E. Cady ; thence he entered the 
Northwestern University at Evanstown, 111., where he graduated in 
1883, and in 1886 from Garrett Biblical Institute. He was 
appointed to West China in July, 1886. Located at Chung-hiang, 
May, 1887, the only American in the western half of China. In 
1891 he removed to Chengtu which was his station until 1904, 
when he returned to this country. He organized the first churches 
in Chengtu and vicinity in connection with the M. E. church; 
baptized the first converts ; bought the first real estate and prepared 
the first buildings for church, school and parsonages ; opened the 
first school of Western learning, developed the first high school and 
projected the first college, now the Union Chengtu University. 
With other missionaries he was driven from Chengtu in May, 1895, 
but did not leave the province ; had reopened the work in Decem- 
ber. Was the first foreign teacher employed by the Chinese govern- 
ment in West China in 1903. He occupied all kinds of positions 
in the mission, and did all kinds of work that come to a pioneer 
missionary. He was placed on the relieved list of the missionary 
society in October, 1905. He supplied Mandel church, Chicago, 
from Oct., 1906, to 1907; the Englewood M. E. church 1908-9, 
and now (1909) is stationed at Palatine, 111. Truly such a record is 
of far greater worth than the conquest of a provence by martial 
arms. Mrs. Cady is an active worker in the Epworth League of 
Chicago.

He spent his early life with his parents in Providence. On the 
breaking out of the Civil war he entered the army, being commis- 
sioned at first as Captain and later as Major of Rhode Island 
volunteers, in which positions he served with honor. Leaving the 
army, he became a typical traveling salesman. In the midst of this 
successful career he experienced a spiritual transformation which 
changed his life plans. He soon united with the Trinity church 
(Methodist), Providence, and such was his zeal and usefulness that 
he was licensed as an exhorter in March, 1869, and soon became a 
supply pastor in Pocasset, Mass., and joined the New England 
Southern Conference in 187 1 on trial. In 1873 he was received 
into full membership and ordained a deacon; in 1875 was ordained 
elder. This event was followed by 13 pastorates and 36 years of 
effective service. His exact business methods, his keen insight into 
human nature, coupled with his tiue evangelistic spirit made him 
very successful in all his pastoral relations. He was a member of 
Slocum Post, G. A. R., Providence, and at one time Chaplain of the 
G. A. R., State of Rhode Island. He was also a member of the 
Masonic and Odd Fellow fraternities.

was in charge of the Hammond avenue Presby- 
terian church from June, 1888, until December, 
1897. In 1894 he was given a leave of absence, 
when he took his first trip to Egypt and Palestine ; 
in 1897 he took his second trip of exploration, and 
returned to take charge of the Emmanuel Presby- 
terian church in Amsterdam, N. Y., where he is 
now located. On account of his explorations along 
the west shore of the Dead Sea he was elected a 
Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1905, 
an honor accorded to only a few Americans. He 
was the first man to photograph that region, and 
the first to ascend the Arnon, a tributary of the 
Dead Sea, doing the work under great difficulties 
and privations.* The result of Dr. Cady's trips 
abroad has been the production of a remarkable 
series of lectures on Bible lands, which have been 
delivered before many of the most select audiences 
in the country with the most popular effect. One 
of the pleasant features of the Union College com- 
mencement of 1908 was the conferring of the 
degree of Doctor in Divinity upon Putnam Cady, 
" for original research in Bible lands ; for archaeolo- 
gical and geographical discoveries which have com- 
manded recognition at home and abroad ; for 
fidelity and success in the pastoral office."

Mr. Cady belongs to a family which never had any drones in its 
makeup. He early learned the trade of a stair builder, which he 
still continues ; he also is able to turn his hand to many mechanical 
devices, to the advantage of himself as well as others. Com- 
bined with his business life he has found time to devote to genealog- 
ical research and has gathered a mass of data pertaining to his own 
and some collateral branches of the Cady family, much to the 
enrichment of this work, which aid the compiler gratefully 
acknowledges. And besides he has been an active man of affairs in 
his own locality and the state, as will be seen in the following 
summary : Member of St. Andrews lodge, No. 39, F. & A. M. of 
East Providence, of which he is a Past Master ; member of chapter

years later he secured an appointment in the railway mail service 
with a run from Springfield, Mo., to Kansas City, and removed to

THE HOLMES-CADY MEMORIAL 

SOCIETY. 



/" I AHE Holmes-Cady Memorial Society was organized at 
Ashford, Conn., Aug. 23, 1898, by thirteen ladies and 
gentlemen, descendants respectively of Nicholas Cady 
of Watertown, Mass., 1645, and John Holmes of Dorchester, 1664. 
The party had met at the birthplace of Rhoda (Holmes) Cady for a 
pleasant outing, when it was proposed to organize a society 
embracing all descendants of the two allied houses who chose to 
become members, with the view of holding an annual meeting in 
August, with a basket picnic, for mutual benefit and enjoyment. The 
proposition met with such favor that the society was formed at once, 
and Dwight Holmes Cady of Springfield was elected president, 
Arthur W. Kingsbury of Stafford Springs vice president, and Mrs. 
A. W. Kingsbury secretary and treasurer. The members present 
appear in the group picture on the opposite page, with the excep- 
tion of Mr. Kingsbury, who acted as photographer. Their names 
are as follows, from left to right: Front row — (1) Mrs. Charles 
Thresher, (2) Mrs. Henry Hobby, (3) Ralph King. Second row — 
(4) Mrs. George R. Kingsbury, (5) D. H. Cady, (6) Mrs. Mary 
Hobby, (7) Mrs. A. W. Kingsbury, (8) Mrs. Orra Maddams. 
Third row — (9) Mrs. Ralph King, (10) Mrs. Fluvia Cady, (n) 
Charles Thresher, (12) Charles H. Hobby. 

The second annual meeting was held at the old Jedadiah Cady 
homestead in Tray Hollow, West Stafford, Conn. ; the third meeting 
at the Augustus Holmes homestead in West Stafford ; the fourth 
meeting was held at Evergreen Park, between Monson and Stafford, 
and was continued there each year till 1906. In 1907 the place of 
meeting was changed to Crystal Lake, Ellington, Conn., a most 
beautiful resort, and the meetings have since been held there.

DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS CADY. 



Dwight Holmes Cady was annually elected president for five years 
from 1898 to 1902, the time of his death. Mr. O. M. Brown of 
Springfield held the office three years from 1903 to 1905, and Orrin 
P. Allen of Palmer, Mass., was elected in 1906 and has been 
reelected each year till the present (1910). Arthur W. Kingsbury 
of Stafford Springs has held the office of vice president since the 
organization of the society. Mrs. Mary Fairbank Holmes of West 
Brookfield, Mass., is the efficient secretary and treasurer. These 
annual gatherings are attended by about 150 members and are 
occasions of much enjoyment, when new acquaintances are formed
